DON'T NAP, FIND JESUS

Am I the only one who has problems with solicitors? Today a solicitor banged on my door until they woke the babeola up from her nap. I was furious and less than gracious.

Particularly when I saw it was not someone I had invited or someone I knew. Just someone who thought that because I was home, I was available at their convenience.  Wanting to sell me windows or Jesus or lawn care or politics.

Grrrrr.

This has been an ongoing problem. I have signs on the front door and need to replace the ones on the side door. I have actually seen solicitors read the front door signs and then go to the side door (currently sign free) in an effort to circumvent the 'no soliciting' sign.

Since it is the babeola's naps that save my soul, I am really irate when someone screws that up. Thanks to solicitors, there was no nap today.

A pox on all solicitors. Perhaps a "Baby Sleeping ; Wake At Your Own Peril" sign will work better than "No Soliciting."

I used to have a sign that said 'Waking a baby is bad karma' Never seemed to stop anyone.

Maybe I'm nasty and agressive, but I think big, bold letters :
IF YOU WAKE MY NAPPING BABY BY KNOCKING ON THIS DOOR YOU WILL KNOW THE WRATH OF A WOMAN WILLING TO USE A BASEBALL BAT ON ANY AND ALL TRESPASSERS.

Add a picture of a Louisville Slugger to the bottom, with some ketchup on it. Under it:
FEEL LIKE BEING NEXT?

So did you answer the door? I would just bark madly like a wild woman on the other side. If they see you doing this, all the better.... they probably won't return to save your soul.
